What the club says: Founded in 1903 and situated about two miles north east of Ballymena, on the fringes of the "Britain in Bloom" award-winning village of Broughshane, sits Ballymena Golf Club. The entire course is dominated by Slemish Mountain, which is world renowned due to its association with Ireland's patron saint, Patrick, and offers a superb scenic backdrop to enhance your round.

A forgiving course- perfect for all

A great wee course just on the Broughshane side of Ballymena. Open fairways which run alongside each other. Plenty of chance of finding the shot that doesn't go where you planned.

Let's start with the good points. The greens are excellent but very flat. The clubhouse and facilities are excellent with good proshop too. I was welcomed in the proshop by an apologetic man who charged £18 for a round £3 more than Galgorm(home of the Northern Ireland open) on golf now. I was welcomed half way done the 1st with the almighty stink of the chicken/Turkey farm next door. That followed me around the course. The course itself is flat and unimaginative, which is fine if you want to refine your yardage, if the holes weren't marked in meters that is....the tees hadn't been cut all week and there was grass behind my ball on striking...tut tut!
This course doesn't want to attract visitors (God knows why) with the price of green fees. It can survive on its membership which is understandably cheap. If you're a visitor to North Antrim do not golf here. We are spoiled for courses with reasonable green fees(golf now) I.e. Gracehill, Galgorm, ballyclare to name just three.

Played this in a practice round for the Irish mixed foursomes. Never been as confused or disappointed with a course in my life. There is no natural flow to the course you can't really tell which hole you are supposed to play next, also there are a few holes that seem to have been added just to make up the numbers. There are a few holes which had a nice shape to them but for the majority it is just a big flat open field with a few trees and flags. The bunkers had very little sand, if any. Managed to hit the bottom of two with very little effort. I have very few courses that I can say I never want to play again but this is definitely one I cannot recommend to anyone. The club house and facilities are very good and the pro shop is good but that is about all the highlights I could find. It's an easy course to score well on if you need a confidence boost.

The course was in overall very good condition. The greens were a bit uneven thanks to the harshness of the previous winter.

Nice inland course, where you have to be scoring 40 pts + to be in with a shout of beating any of your playing partners. Great fun to play.

This is a very well kept short par 68 course. It is very flat and if you are a big hitter provides great opportunites especially at par 4's. Great value for money course, very good for beginners and intermediates to improve game.

The course is very basic but the excellent price reflects this. There is only one tiny pond on the entire course and only the worst hook on the 12th will see you find it. Bunkers are also quite minimal and very easy to avoid. However, the rough is very challenging and some holes have some tricky trees to negotiate. For a beginner (like me) or someone looking to get back into the game, this is a good course. A mixture of long irons and a couple of trick greens with often devilish pin positions will really test the low skilled player. Low handicappers, though, should find the course very easy to hit below their handicap on. The pro-shop is small and basic but keeps all the essentials.
